Yes, there are gay men who are closeted and marry women. But why WHY does it never occur to anyone that they could be bi men?
This post brought to you by yet another TV plot point hinging on #BiErasure
We're in the process now of removing rotten pieces of the #Camper wood skeleton & replacing them with new lumber.
It's hard to steal lumber when you don't have a truck, or so I've heard
I worked on the #Camper yesterday but once again I forgot to take pictures. The light is pretty terrible anyway.
I realized I'm not going to expose everything at once because that would require removing a structural integrity-threatening amount of the walls around the center of the trailer, where the bathroom, closets, kitchen, & heating appliances are
Drag race, USpol, drug injection
Just learned that Sharon Needles is a full on Republican, and, given that GOP policy is to force addicts to share needles and die rather than access humane addiction treatment including clean needles, her name seems less like an ironic joke and more like a cruel taunt
How Facial Recognition Is Becoming The Indian Government’s New Best Friend
From hovering drones to hawk-eyed CCTV cameras, Indians by 2020 have become used to being surveilled. Facial recognition, one of the booming, yet controversial technologies, is being harnessed by the Government on a large scale.

I don't feel like I've got like, less white looking as I've gotten older, but I've definitely gotten more racial harassment based on being read as not-white, which leads me to one conclusion:
whiteness is narrowing.
Watch out, has-been others! It'll be your turn soon enough.
Unless you wanna join me and other anarchists in fighting back and building better things:
@SallyStrange recreational ocean travel DOES exist for long distance travel, there are cruise lines that do transatlantic and transpacific cruises.
the problem of course is getting the luxury of that much free time with American labor practices - right now you can only afford to do that if you’re well-off and bougie enough to either have the kind of job that lets you have a month or two at a time, or be able to just quit your job and live off savings that long.
rail, though, there’s no fucking excuse for not having it in the US, I’ve figured out a route that, using state-of-the-art Chinese HSR equipment, would get you between Los Angeles and New York (passing through Las Vegas, Salt Lake City, Denver, Kansas City, Chicago, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, and Philadephia) in 18 hours. with stops. with equipment and infrastructure that is in service, carrying revenue passengers (in China so it may well be massively subsidized but honestly I’ll take it given how much the negative externalities of air travel are subsidized), today, not some future technology. (Google Maps for roads between those cities is exactly 3200 miles (and rail could hypothetically be more direct), at 350 km/h that’s 14.7 hours if done at full speed continuously, and the newest Chinese equipment is capable of 400 km/h reducing that to 12.9 hours.)
or if you want your rail equipment and infrastructure from countries with better human rights records than China, there’s a lot of options for 350 km/h-capable equipment, although AFAIK nobody’s running 350 km/h service outside of China
